About the Speakers

Laura Tucker Interior Designer and Project Manager for Magnolia - Design and Construction.  Working with Joanna Gaines, she was lead designer and project manager of renovations for all 5 seasons of Fixer Upper. Laura was the design lead on Magnolia Bakery and Magnolia Table.  She developed her design skills and talent within her first and current role with Magnolia, where she discovered her passion of restoration and all the symbolism it holds. For her, design is taking old, destroyed things or maybe out of nothing things, and putting life and beauty back into them. 

Susan Packard – Co-Founder & Former COO of HGTV.  Susanis an entrepreneur who joined the TV industry in her 20s and helped build marquee TV brands like CNBC, HGTV and Food Network. The strategies she learned to survive and thrive in male-dominated industries became the core of her first book, New Rules of the Game During her tenure as chief operating officer of HGTV, it became one of the fastest growing TV brands in history with a market value of over $14 billion. Susan currently spends her time writing, speaking and mentoring women and men curious about their promise and wanting to grow their potential.
